Eli closed the door behind himself and looked at his little sister, who was sitting on her bed, looking sullenly right back at him. He would never have thought that he would be having this kind of talk with Stephanie, but here they were.
“Where’d you get them, Steph?”
Eli’s little sister grabbed a pillow and hugged it to her chest, glaring at him. “Give them back, Elijah.”
“I already flushed them down the toilet. Jesus, Stephanie, do you have any idea what this would do to Mom and Grandma if they found out?”
The girl snorted, rolling her eyes. “I think I’ve got a pretty good idea, actually,” she drawled.
“Don’t you take that tone with me,” Eli said coldly. “Don’t even try.”
“Why not?” Stephanie asked. “Mom’s always on my ass to be more like you. Why shouldn’t I get to be a super-hero too?”
Eli spluttered a moment before pausing to inhale deeply. “MGH does not make you a hero, Steph. It’ll get you killed.”
“I’m not hearing this from you,” Stephanie said with a little sniff, turning her back on her brother.
“Fine by me,” Eli announced, throwing his hands up in the air. “There’s someone waiting right outside to talk to you. KATE!”
Kate opened the door, poking her head into the room. “You don’t have to shout. I’m right here.”
